for failed education systems, failed school systems to get their acts together. throughout the country there are some promising signs that we can bring schools and parents together to improve our educational system. san francisco public schools adopted a funding mechanism according to what's termed a weighted student formula. under this policy the more students a school attracts, the more money that school, its administrators and teachers receive. low-income students are weighted heavier and the funding forum as our children with disabilities, and those learning english as a second language. so there's incentives are schools to seek the more vulnerable population, and reasons for schools to differentiate themselves and to excel. imagine if we were to try and move in this direction with federal funding. allow the money we truly spend to actually follow individual children. students, including those without a lot of money for those with special needs, we be able to access a school which would give them a shot at having a successful life, a shot at earning their success and achieving thei
'll advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, health health, innovation, and job growth. our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self-reliance, faith in the individual, trust in family, and accountability in government. our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to earn success and achieve their dreams. it's my hope that i can stand before you two years from now and report you that our side, as well as the president's, found within us the ability to set differences aside in order to provide relief to so many millions of americans who just want their life to work again. in so many countries in history, children were largely confined to the same station in life as their parents, but not here. because here we've seen the son of a shoe man become the president of the united states. we have seen a daughter of a poor single mom develop and build a company that turned into her being the oregon of a tv network. in america, the grandson of poor immigrants, who fled russia, come here, and that grandson became the majority leader of the h
from president clinton is this public leadership, this education function? >> i really agree with that and i think that people used -- people in your business really used to complain about the president's length of his state of the unions. but really he thought of that as a time where i can really lay this out, i can slain to people what i'm trying to achieve, i can reup my contract with the american people about what's positive, his job approval as i said always went up when he did that. but i think that really is a critical element of what a president needs to do in the second term. the other thing he needs to do is use the full force of his executive power. when it comes to moving on clean energy and climate change, when it comes to implementing health care, when it comes to many of the president's other priorities, he's not going to get a lot of help from the republicans on capitol hill, but he can achieve success through the deft use now in the process of building out his second term cabinet, more use of the cabinet to try to get those things done. i think it will be cri
mailers in march, next month, and will be conducting a number of educational efforts to make sure we reach all business customers. as we get closer to the delivery scheduled change in in august, we will be publishing information in post offices, putting it online and other customer contact to make sure our residential customers know. let me conclude with a couple of thoughts. this announcement today is just one part of a much larger strategy to return the postal service to long-term financial stability. the plans saves $2 billion annually, that we have a $20 billion gap to close. we are striving to raise revenues, reduce costs and gain efficiencies throughout the entire organization and making this change to our delivery schedule is a big-ticket item and simply too big of a cost savings to ignore. in fact, i would strongly argue it would be irresponsible for the postal service not to pursue this course. second, we are implementing this approach to improve our overall business performance. there is a strong and growing demand for our package service and we need to meet that over the coming
to me. she was great. she is articulate, very well educated, did some wonderful things, knew how to handle the power of male egos. but the press would not give her the same accolades, the general media would not give for this and accolades, not because she was competent, but because of her political ideology. there is some dispute bi -- skewed bias rating hillary clinton for some of the wrong things. host: on twitter -- "the washington post" adds this as far as analysis of her time in office -- "many of clinton's successes appeared to be due largely to her personal popularity and famous work ethics, attributes that were on display in her final days in office." nevada. caller: i would like to make a few comments about hillary clinton. i think the only reason she ever had her job was because of her husband, bill. she did exactly what she has been told to do by the president's, and a lot of us are not on tune with president obama's schedule, especially this benghazi deal. whenever a person throws her hands up in the air and is not want to admit to any responsibility of a job done po
's behavior by members of the military and a savings plan and he finds financial education program substantially increased savings in the tsp have had no or sunpak, for example, on the amount of credit for military members have outstanding. so re-signing of crowd out there. the society by my colleague at harvard looking at denmark are much better data and they are so concerned about privacy. when they look at automatic savings programs, they found little cutout and other parts of the balance sheet either. so i think it's a legitimate concern, though most of the evidence suggests certainly it's not one-for-one offset. >> any other thoughts on the crowd out at all ms. mccarthy? >> i would offer we don't have it. the complexity it would affect the asset the pain is difficult. it's important on the automatic enrollment is a significant impact in getting participants into the plan. our enrollment rate, participation rate is 67% previous automatic enrollment 80%. it's a very powerful distinction in and of itself is so dramatic that it's hard for me to think is creating a big distraction
is actually through the pme, through the nco academy, through the officer sessions, education and training is teach men and women how to manage, um, some of the challenges that are going to come up related to gender, related to dating, related to rumors, related to concerns about if i push a woman, am i going to be accused of singling her out and harassing her, or am i then developing her and her skills? we can share the lessons that we've learned to make them more effective at it rather than leave each sort of man and woman to invent it themselves or figure it out themselves or learn through trial and error which we can potentially, um, lose out or wash out in other women. >> good. thank you, dr. miller. very insightful. i think we've heard a good discussion up to this point about the possibility of gender-neutral physical standards and how they would be implemented and enforced. the necessary role of leadership, continuing to build on changing the culture. i'd like to allow the, or give the audience an opportunity now to ask some questions. gayle, would you like to ask the first one? >>
-time work since. college-educated, 20 years of experience. i live in san francisco in an area where did score -- where discrimination based on age is encouraged. discrimination based on race is encouraged as well. it is a shame. my senators, basically if you are not from a protected class, you do not exist. these people -- i saved up a lot of money over my life and had planned on retiring at 65, like everyone else, but i spent a lot of my retirement just trying to survive, which is a shame. host: was your retirement 401k? personal savings? how did it break down? caller: it was a mix. host:-, n.c., joe is joining us on the independent line. -- ash, n.c., joe is joining us on the independent line. caller: all of a sudden everything fell apart several years ago. i could have retired, but i saw the writing on the wall, businesses started falling down and everyone who has a retirement, god bless you, but it is so hard. i feel bad for the grandchildren who they all say are not going to make it. it is terrible, this country has put a hole in front of everything else. they have got to quit doin
want to point out, which will be live it 10:00 a.m. on c-span3 is education secretary arne duncan talking about waivers for the "no child left behind" bill. on c- like a 10:00 a.m. span3. robert is on our republican line for seamless. should sequestration be allowed to go through? caller: hi. we were calling it the fiscal cliff. all the sudden it seems we have gone away from that and we are calling it sequestration. i thought that the whole term "fiscal cliff" came about because sequestration was part of that. the media keeps differentiating that now. host: you don't see a difference? caller: it is still sequestration, that is the fiscal cliff. that has not gone away. host: semantics aside, what would you like to see done? caller: just for the media to clarify we never really got anywhere except for slight increase in taxes on a small number of people. it was $450 million and above. how many people actually dropped checks of? ? host: $450 million? caller: $450,000. excuse me. i don't know anybody that's actually gets a check of that amount, or maybe a bonus. i don't know. nonethel
. it's appropriate i do this at georgetown. as the product of jesuit education, as a catholic and as a beneficiary over the years of your outstanding faculty and staff and your important policy contributions that this university has made in a number of areas that affect people of this country. i'm truly honored to have this opportunity today. i've had a deep and abiding respect for georgetown throughout the almost 40 to 50 years that i've been involved in public service. and i have a deep respect for the generation of leaders that have gone forward from this campus to serve our nation. i just had the opportunity to meet with your cadets. some of the cadets in the rotc program. as someone who went through the rotc program at santa clara university and then ultimately served two years in the army, i can tell you that i have tremendous admiration for those that have made the decision to serve this country in uniform. the talents of these men and women and the innovative programs at georgetown's new institute of women, peace and security underscore for me the university's leadersh
to live without. embarrassment's and education and infrastructure. research and development -- investments and education and infrastructure. already republicans and democrats of work together to reduce deficits by $2.50 trillion. that is a good start. to get the rest of the way, we need a balanced set of reforms. for example, we need to lower the cost of health care and programs like medicare that are the biggest drivers of the deficit. these reforms must go hand in hand with eliminating excess spending in the tax code so the wealthiest individuals can ticket veg of loopholes and deductions the kind of bailable to most americans. it can be a year solid growth, more jobs, and higher wages. that will only happen of reporters up to self-inflicted wounds. host: the president in his weekly address. the earlier debt limit with $16.40 trillion. we have surpassed that. you can keep track of it at usdebtclock.org. it is now $60.50 trillion. the next debate over the debt limit is likely to come up mid may. a story from "the weekly standard." we need a better argument against the debt. she writes --
problems and provide assistance. frankly, we also need to educate the force. you have to have peers who are working alongside of you who can identify those problems. someone looks like they have problems, they are having a difficult time, to identify that and make sure that that person gets the help they need. it is like everything else. all of us need to be aware -- all of us need to be a part of the answer to be able to make sure that doesn't happen. but this is something that -- there is no silver bullet. there is no silver bullet here. i wish there was. it means we have to operate on every front to do with this. -- deal with this. we have to be able to make sure that we deployed people in a rational basis so they are deployed into a combat area, but then have an amount of time that they can get their lives back together again. and do it rationally. that has to be done. we have to provide the support system, the health care system, be able to educate the force, to understand and to recognize those kinds of problems. all of that needs to be done if we're to address this. most importan
to reach out to the industry to come up with a way to really promote financial literacy and education before college level, getting into high schools so that we have an educated group of young folks who come out and understand about the importance of having a financial house in order, the importance of having a good credit history, the understanding what it means to be smart about using credit. >> you can watch that entire conversation with the chamber of commerce this afternoon right after the farewell ceremony for secretary of defense leon panetta, which is expected to start at about 3:45 p.m. eastern, and next tuesday night, president obama delivering his fourth state of the union address to a joint session of congress. it includes the president's speech at 9:00 and the republican response from florida senator marco rubio. that will be on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org >> first lady helen taft on discussing politics. >> i always had the satisfaction of knowing almost as much as he about the politics and intricacies of any situation. i think any woman can discuss with her husb
and education as had the sputnik launch in 1957. to a younger generation, sputnik is probably not as big a thing as it is to an older generation but that was pretty clever but most of his slogans, most of his abilities have not really caught on. another one he came up with, he was in washington and he said it is a strange construct but in august, this is the time when washington, things are hard to get done. nobody knows what that means but somehow is applicable. on that low note, i think i will see if you have any questions. yes, ma'am? >> i am surprised you didn't mention the president's we popularly thing, the most eloquent like ronald reagan and john f. kennedy. were they just good at regular words? >> john f. kennedy had wonderful phrases, the new frontier was is that they were more eloquent in the sense of their ability to give speeches. they didn't have -- wasn't that they created a term that was everlasting. some have interesting -- go to new frontier, truman had some nice ones. brought back an old american term, truman -- have all got stories. my favorite was truman was having trouble w
those immigration laws fixed. and they want sort of these educational reforms that are more market oriented. so the things that you're starting to see the republican party move on are really things the business wing wants. >> but when you look at the fact, ryan, that is in just the public conversation, that this split in the republican party and clearly those that are considered more establishment. they say those offend a lot of people that they need if they're ever going to be competitive. let me give you an example. are there options that we should consider between the extremes of mass deportation and a pathway to citizenship for those not lawfully present in the united states. >> well, let me say that i do believe that a pathway to citizenship should be the option that the congress selects. i don't see that as an extreme option. >> the gop still sees a path way to citizen ship as an extreme option? is this a sign of progress on the right? >> i guess it depends on where you start from the progress. if it's from 2010, then, yes, absolutely, that's progress. but from ten years ago,
are important, education and infrastructure of the health and human service needs. so medicaid will need to have some flexibility, much of the software going to watch as we go forward. let me just finish by ending where i started. we need to address the rising cost of health care. i do think the affordable care act does that. i think we provided an opportunity with our health care exchange in utah as a model based on good principles that allows businesses to continue to provide the benefit and help with competitive forces and consumer control to, in fact, have an impact on the rising cost of health care. it may be imperfect but it's a step i think in the right direction. again, the fundamental position that i'm taking and we are taking in utah is free market works if we allow but it takes politicians like myself and others out there to be disciplined and to give time for the marketplace to work. we sometimes are so anxious to fix a problem that we don't let the marketplace make the adjustments that are necessary to get the right outcome. and again as i said, if we want the best quality product,
education, a group of men that are educators, police, other kinds of leaders in their community in business and provide that kind of role model, which we helped to start through interval house, our major domestic shelter in the state. only a small example of how these efforts can have a ripple effect through vawa. we need to not only renew our commitment to end domestic violence but also to update and strengthen and expand the violence against women act. i'm pleased to join my colleague, senator portman, to offer an amendment that strengthens services for children and youth victims of sex trafficking. yes, sex trafficking and human trafficking continue to exist in this nation. sometimes invisible, unknown. one of the most heinous crimes imaginable -- modern-day slavery, unspeakable indenture of children. and we need to do more to ensure that children in our communities who are victims of sex trafficking have access to the lifesaving services that are available to other youth victims of domestic violence or sexual assault. we can make sure that agencies and organizations that provide these s
strategic investments in education, science, research and critical infrastructure necessary to compete in the global economy. the speaker pro tempore: the house will be in order. the house will be in order. the gentlewoman from pennsylvania is recognized for five minutes. ms. schwartz: thank you. i rise in opposition to this bill and to offer the final amendment that will not kill the bill or send it back to committee. if adopted, the bill, as amended, will immediately proceed to final passage. this amendment rejects the rigid partisan view presented in this legislation that deficit reduction must be achieved by spending cuts alone regardless of the consequences. moving from one crisis to another and failing to meet our responsibilities as republicans have done time and time again has hurt our economic growth. most recently in december, our economy contracted for the first time in three years. as a result of delayed action by republican leadership in the house. this amendment makes clear there is a better way. it recognizes that our nation faces serious financial challenges. we agree,
entrepreneurs should cheer you up. if you're worried about the lack of science educators, eager foreign-born people coming here to work there, it is the most obvious and clean solution. paul ryan makes a point of pointing out the growth advantages of immigration.
for educating themselves can ever have the broad reach of tv where political messages intrude unbidden into living rooms. will it revolutionize mix? that's harder to say. so said ari fleischer in 1999 before he became white house press secretary. ah, this computer thing, it's just a flash in the pan. in all fairness, though, it was not just ari fleischer. pretty much everybody in 1999 was agog with what these california software geeks were doing with the internets and how it was affecting politics maybe some day in the future. of course, house republicans did go ahead with the impeachment process. so the censure and move on folks decided that they would not fold up. they decided to use the amazing magical power of the internet machine to try to make at least some of the pro-impeachment republicans pay for that stance. the folks with the online petition decided to reinvent themselves as a pac in 1999. they endorsed and started fundraising for a handful of progressive congressional candidates. again, the novelty was not that they were a pressure group on the left taking democrats' side i
educated, so the democrats love to nominate people with ivy league pedigree is to speak in complete paragraphs. stevenson, kennedy, roosevelt, even bill clinton, barack obama. the republicans are seen as the party of the landed gentry and the well off, and like to nominate candidates from humble origins, whether it is richard nixon, ronald reagan, certainly herbert hoover, dwight eisenhower, jerry ford, and that is why george h w bush, another man who i like and admire enormously at the personal level -- an incredibly thoughtful man -- he reinforced the perception of the republicans as the party of the landed gentry. it became a problem in 1992. >> which campaign did you dislike the most? >> the 2012 campaign was a pretty bad campaign. >> because? >> i do not think either barack obama or mitt romney really likes politics that much. you have to have people who like politics. >> how can you not like politics and run for president? >> you will have to ask them or their doctors. i do not think either one of them get much joy out of it. >> do you still get joy out of it? >> i do. not as
from your normal speech aimed at middle class families. heavy emphasis on education, on health care, and a surprising emphasis on immigration reform. we'll get to that later. is this a kinder, gentler eric cantor? is this a kinder and gentler republican party? >> you know, i think this is a demonstration of our conservative principles. you know, steeped in self-reliance, in faith in the individual and families. and an insistence on accountability in government. it's putting these principles to work to demonstrate that conservative principles and policies actually benefit people, can help make life work again. >> is it fair to say, in all seriousness, is it fair to say in the last election and who knows when the gop really wasn't directing its policies at the middle class and now you're trying to correct that? is that one of your main themes, main ideas? >> no, larry. i think the lesson learned from the last election is we stood strong on the policies trying to right size the government, to manage down the debt and deficit. for some reason we were unable to demonstrate, or we didn't
. lucas says he will donate most of the proceeds from that sale to education. >>> time now for "politico." >> let's check in with jim vandehei, executive editor down at "politico" for a look at the "playbook." jim, what's going on? >> good. how you doing? >> doing all right. we've got your behind-the-curtain report this morning. you're talking about the separation between the republican party, fox news, they've shed now dick morris to go along with governor palin. what's going on here inside the republican party? >> i think what's fascinating is you have these parallel purges. you have the republican party and you have fox news. both of which took a big hit in the 2012 elections. fox has seen its ratings dip particularly in january. republicans have obviously had a lot of problems with their brand post-election. so both sides are trying to get rid of the most toxic characters. on the one side, you have fox getting rid of palin. you have fox getting rid of dick morris. you have some of their bigger names advocating for a rethinking of immigration reform. on the official republican side, y
out autos, and wall street, medical, education, emergency are call heavily impacted a manipulated by government, fiscal rectitude we cannot mention that. and sound money, he would be appalled to see the kind of reckless wild almost lunatic money prints that is going on by the fed today, especially it was done by republican appointees. high thought greenspan was a solid conservative gold standard man, high turned out to be the biggest money printer to occupy federal reserve, then republicans appointed bernanke who is an out and out keynesian, and has monetized trillions of the debt, ronald reagan was opposed to all of, that here we are 30 years later, this is where it has done, not only because of the democrats that is why i'm upset, because the republicans have taken us down this path. charles: interesting because, ronald reagan worked with volcker. at the time he of a question mark to his policies, but do you think one essential thing that that changed is the inability of americans to accept any form of pain, the notion there should always be a soft landing delivered by whether m
to be everything together holistically. more police, better education, certainly mental health, those are the things that we need to do. so those that want to work with us, that's great. but the nra, which they kind of gave us hints that they were willing to work with us, but now they have totally flipped and they want nothing to do with us. >> it's nothing from the nra. the nra's wayne la pierre -- we're out of time. we're going to keep this conversation up for months. you have had the experience of knowing how important it is. gabby giffords' husband, mark kelly. >> and that's the difference. other victims are now speaking up, and to see gabby yesterday and her husband by her side talking about this, these were strong nra supporters, and yet they see what can be done. >> i think -- >> 20 dead first graders -- >> go ahead, ron. >> i ws going to say in closing, 20 dead first graders has a way of concentrating the mind. >> right. >> it's a serious conversation. it's an american conversation. thank you, congresswoman carolyn mccarthy of new york and ron reagan. >>> we have one more note
of science educators, eager foreign-born people coming here to work there, it is the most obvious and clean solution. paul ryan makes a point of
, as you said, it for younger americans. he spoke a lot about education. he even praised san francisco's education system and the schools there, which is perhaps not the most obvious place for somebody as conservative as eric cantor. this is a speech, joe, that he tested out in davos at the world economic forum to try and give, as you've been talking about, the republican party a kind of more open, friendlier edge not just to be talking about number crunching, not just to be talking about deficit reduction because he feels and people in the party feel that that's given them the image of people that are just concerned about the numbers, about the bottom line, about those issues. naturally they need to be addressing issues that families are concerned about, infrastructure and immigration as well. there wasn't a whole lot new in terms of radical policy proposals. and i hate to say this. i kind of agree with dana milbank on the optics of it. he's not the easiest sunny guy. he's not a paul ryan guy who finds it easy to smile and connect with people. he does come across as a little stiff. he
to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. >> new numbers from the congressional budget office may provide some ammunition. the cbo projects the economy will grow at a measly rate of 1.4% this year and 3.4% next year. the cbo forecast is correct, 2014 will be the sixth consecutive year with unemployment above 7.5%, but expect to hear from republicans about another big number in that report, and although the federal deficit will drop below $1 trillion in 2013, the first time since 2008 for that, the federal debt will stay at historically high levels relative to the economy through 2023 when it will equal 77% of the gross domestic product. moving on to the drone story. president obama's time in office, u.s. military and cia drone strikes have accelerated an an unprecedented pace to eight times the level under president george w. bush. after nbc news exclusively obtained a 16-page justice department white paper that concluded that strikes that target and kill u.s. citizens who are operational leaders of al qaeda and are in fact a lawful act of natio
